Writing Intensive Course Information

Students work on developing the reporting, writing and reading skills that will make them better storytellers and magazine writers. Since writing is both a craft and an art, we spend time looking at the various elements of magazine writing that transform experience of the reporter into engaging narratives that captivate the attention of an audience. This class also encourages the development of the interpersonal skills necessary to become a successful journalist.
